hey no rush. Plus not really does not make sense to implement that now since the rules were not setup as such.

I have a question about the revamped maps: Does this mean you can take a picture of the map before it was revamped? For example British Isles was revamped. I went to the thread, but I can't find the picture of what it looked like before it was revamped.

Thanks WM. I agree. The game that we all signed up to play stipulated that we would have 48 hours. Honestly, after the first couple of rounds, I was wondering how thenobodies was going to break that massive tie but I think he's done an excellent job of increasing the difficulty with each round (after 2). And, obviously, not everyone can find all the maps given 48 hours, as we have had a few people drop out of first (and I may be one of them this time, I haven't finished yet).

I doubt that anyone would dispute that you, WM, probably know the details of more maps than anyone else since you were involved in the revamp of many of the older maps and have, of course, done many of your own. If there were another game, where people only had a limited amount of time to identify the maps, I wouldn't even enter. This game has been allowing us to study the details of the maps, and has been fun, thus far. Imposing a time limit would make it a completely different game that would be testing a completely different skill set.

I can't really say that I'm happy about the inclusion of older versions of the maps, which may have been revamped before some of us were even on this site. Yeah, maybe some of the older versions are available for viewing in the forum threads, but some aren't. Are we really to troll through pages after pages of posts in all of the threads about Classic, Middle East, Canada, Brazil, British Isles, Indochina, Germany, Montreal, Circus Maximus, Middle Earth/Centerscape/Midgard, Das Schloss, and any others that I might have missed to find out if there is a link to or post of the old map? Tedious and not fun.

I definitely agree with Ffraid. I don't think older versions of revamps should be apart of the map competition. I'm having a difficult time even finding older revamped versions. That shouldn't be a factor in this map competition.

ok,good point guys, we will continue with the 48H. (i'll code it for a future edition, thanks again for the suggestion :) )
About the revamped, i really want you enjoy the competition, so i'm available not to use revamped, if you don't find it a fun choice. O:)

So, for the future rounds, you still have 48H to find the correct maps.
Could be used all maps currently available for live play, all maps currently in the Beta stage, all maps no longer available that were used for special events (e.g: St. Patrick map).
The image of the map is always available and visible on the CC site.

Yes, thanks thenobodies. You are a kind and benevolent ruler. Except, of course, for when you are trying to confuse and torment us each week! ;)

Ditto. 46 looked so familiar, but I was not able to figure it out. I also threw in the towel on 41, even though, from some of the posts, it sounded like it was just in the usual places, I couldn't find it.

This was a good round. 41 was super hard. Well done on that one. 46 made me laugh when I found it. That one was well chosen too. Look forward to future rounds.

I finally had to let this go with only 5 out of 10 answered, but I was getting nowhere and could spend any more time searching, especially when my link was running so slowly today. I know I will kick myself when I see the answers, and this surrender will no doubt put me out of the running, unless things go all my way in later rounds. Still, I will keep playing: you never know...

One thing that helped me find the maps was to turn down the resolution on my monitor. That way it made everything bigger and much easier to see the images now that they're smaller. Little hint in our fun competition ;)

Haha - just found my tenth map, but for some reason I had it in my head that I had until noon today to get them in. No points for me - looks like I'm out of it. Good luck, everyone :)

Maps Puzzle - Round 5 [Maps & Scoreboard]

Postby thenobodies80 on Tue May 04, 2010 3:45 pm

Scoreboard updated! :)

It looks that the images 41 and 46 have created some problems ..... :mrgreen:
The map 41 was the hardest to find in my opinion, but I must admit that the number 46 could be misleading. :twisted:

Anyway, as usually here below the images used in the 5th round for anyone who wants to guess (not officially) the right maps.
The correct answers are in the spoiler.

Which maps do the images belong to?

Round 5 - Played

41.Image 42.Image 43.Image 44.Image 45.Image 46.Image 47.Image 48.Image 49.Image 50.Image
